From what I've found, the AAA teams without expiring Player Development Contracts (current ML team in parenthesis) are Buffalo (NYM), Pawtucket (BOS), and Rochester (MIN) in the IL and Albuquerque (LAD), Fresno (SFG), Iowa (CHC), Las Vegas (TOR), Memphis (STL), Nashville (MIL), New Orleans (MIA), Oklahoma (HOU) in the PCL.
From what I can gather Toronto wants Buffalo, and that would make sense for both sides. Pawtucket and Boston aren't separating. I would guess the Mets will get Rochester if they want it and Buffalo signs up with Toronto. That leaves the Twins moving to the PCL. I doubt Albuquerque, Fresno, Iowa, and Memphis will change affiliations. That would leave Nashville, Las Vegas, New Orleans, and Oklahoma to play musical chairs with the Twins, Brewers, Marlins, and Astros. From what I've gathered Las Vegas is everybody's last choice, so that may be where the Twins end up unless one of the other three find something that the Twins offer more appealing.
