Justin Erasmus has played the last three years in the United States for the Boston Red Sox organization. Born in South Africa, Erasmus honed his craft in Brisbane, Australia for several national-level teams. He's played infield and had some success as a hitter, but Boston has utilized him as a pitcher. Athletic, Erasmus mixes in an 87 mph two-seam fastball and an average mid-70s curveball with some nice potential. Probably has room to add some velocity to his fastball. He uses an over-the-top, smooth and deliberate delivery. In 2010 for the Red Sox rookie affiliate team in the Gulf Coast League he finished with a record of 1-3 and an ERA of 2.12 with 33 strikeouts and 9 walks.

Erasmus was primarily used as a short reliever for the Bandits in 2011/12, playing the setup man at times. He also closed out the last two games of the season, garnering two saves in his two opportunities. The former Boston Red Sox farmhand threw 16 innings over 12 games, posting a 2.25 ERA and eight strikeouts on the year. He represented Team Australia in their touring series against Sydney and Canberra in 2012.
