Born in Sremska Mitrovica, Baljak made his senior debut at Teleoptik, before being promoted to Partizan. He made one league appearance with the Crno-beli in the 1999–2000 season. Additionally, Baljak appeared as a substitute in a 0–1 loss to Leeds United in the second leg of the 1999–2000 UEFA Cup first round. He was subsequently sent on a six-month loan to Radnički Kragujevac during the 2000 winter transfer window, eventually failing to make an impact at the club.
In the 2003 winter transfer window, Baljak returned to his homeland and rejoined Budućnost Banatski Dvor. He helped them win the Second League of Serbia and Montenegro (Group North) that year, thus gaining promotion to the First League for the first time in the club's history. They eventually suffered relegation from the top flight in their debut season. Likewise, the club simultaneously reached the Serbia and Montenegro Cup final, thus securing a spot in the 2004–05 UEFA Cup.
While playing for Banat Zrenjanin, Baljak became the Serbian SuperLiga top scorer with 18 goals in the 2006–07 season, thus saving the club from relegation. He also helped the club reach the Serbian Cup semi-final that year, being eliminated by Vojvodina.
In June 2007, Baljak moved to Germany and signed with Mainz 05 on a three-year deal. He was the team's second-highest scorer in the 2008–09 2. Bundesliga with 11 goals, as they won promotion to the Bundesliga. After making his debut in the top flight of German football, receiving limited playing time, Baljak was transferred to MSV Duisburg in January 2010. He was subsequently officially named the team's captain ahead of the 2010–11 campaign, leading the club to the DFB-Pokal final that season.
