What happens?

In light of the news regarding the Yankees looking for a new AAA affiliate, a question bubbled up in my brain. When a team changes its minor league affiliates, do the players move to the new team? Say, if the Mariners decided to cut ties with the Tacoma Rainiers, and choose to affiliate themselves with AAA Calgary or something, do the players currently on the Rainiers roster go to Calgary?

I figure this would be the case, because minor league players are tied to the major league club, and not the minor league club. I can't imagine that you'd just lose all of your prospects because you changed affiliates.

Does anybody have any more information on how this actually works? Thanks.
