Balandis, originally from Lithuania, stands at 6-foot-2, 191 pounds and pitches for the Lithuanian National Team. He has an athletic, wiry-strong frame and works out of a high-3/4 slot with a quick, athletic arm and high front side. He creates some down angle and sits 88-90 mph, getting up to 92 in the past. His breaking ball shows erratic shape and command due to an inconsistent release point, but sits 68-69. His changeup ranges from 78-80.
