MLB: Los Angeles Dodgers at Atlanta Braves

Yankees righty Jameson Taillon squares off against his former team when the New York Yankees take on the Pittsburgh Pirates on Tuesday at PNC Park. The 30-year-old Taillon was selected No. 2 overall by the Pirates in the 2010 draft and went 29-24 in four seasons in Pittsburgh. He was traded to New York in January 2021 and has posted a 17-7 record in pinstripes. New York is a -205 favorite in the latest Yankees vs. Pirates odds from Caesars Sportsbook while Pittsburgh is a +170 underdog.
