In the 1999–2000 season, he transferred from his first team FC Alsbach to SV Waldhof Mannheim. In 2001–02 he moved to 1. FC Köln. Rapid development with the team and consistent first team performances brought him to Bayer 04 Leverkusen for two million €. However, he was unable to assert himself within international competition. He saw the opportunity to move to a newly promoted team, FSV Mainz 05, where he moved during the 2004–05 season, and found form amongst the first team.
On 29 May 2010, Balitsch returned to his former club Bayer 04 Leverkusen, signing a two-year deal.
