The Associated Press reported Friday that it was Taylor's second violation for a drug of abuse.
Taylor is on the roster of Bluefield of the rookie-level Appalachian League. The 19-year-old Spring, Texas, native was drafted by the Jays in the seventh round (216th overall) in 2010. Last year he went 4-2 with a 4.23 earned-runs average with 61 strikes outs in eight games started.
Taylor hails from the same high school and hometown as Red Sox ace Josh Beckett.
