Who is going to be catching in Buffalo? I am not sure what the Jays did with Whiteside or Wilson. Are they still Jays property?
Wilson and Whiteside were lost on waivers trying to sneak them down to Buffalo to be the C there. Thole will be the backup and personal catcher for Dickey (for times where they don't want to risk JP catching him and the potential circus that would entail). Blanco could probably be the next "gonna sneak him down to AAA to be the catcher there" attempt, along with Mike Nikeas (who was also acquired in the Dickey trade and is sort of Thole-insurance since he (nikeas) has caught Dickey too).

I know pre-Dickey that he was almost certainly slated for NH so that he could be their starter, but now with D'arnaud gone, I think he might be given that chance.

Or is he still likely going to need more AA time anyway?

Presuming Blanco makes it to the minors, we're probably looking at:

MLB - Arencibia, Thole
AAA (Buffalo) - Blanco, Nikeas
AA (New Hampshire) - Jimenez, filler
A (Lansing/Vancouver) - Nessy, Seth Connor,2x filler where appropriate
