Mark them as junk

and Mail will learn to put the straight into the Junk folder.

Alternatively, go to Mail > Preferences> Rules and create a new rule with the email address of the offending emails.
Make the rule delete the emails or move them to the Junk folder.

As more junk appears, just add that email address to the rule
