Justin Andrew De Fratus is an American professional baseball relief pitcher for the Philadelphia Phillies of Major League Baseball. De Fratus grew up in Oxnard, California and played baseball in high school prior to playing at Ventura College. The Phillies selected him in the 11th round of the 2007 Major League Baseball Draft. He methodically moved his way up through the Phillies system, spending about one year at each level from rookie to class A, and then moving through two levels per season in 2010 and 2011. In 2011, De Fratus made his MLB debut, and by 2013, he was a regular member of the Phillies bullpen after a few years of splitting time between the major leagues and Triple-A. In 2014, he used his slider to "dominate the league", and establish himself as a reliable reliever capable of pitching in late-inning situations. De Fratus has a two-pitch repertoire that consists of a fastball and a slider, the latter of which is his out pitch. He embraces a propensity to work quickly on the mound, and use a lower arm slot. Off the field, De Fratus is a member of the Roman Catholic church, and uses baseball to strengthen his faith.
