This article is part of our Regan's Rumblings series.
In this series, as we open up the final month of the season, I usually start to trend toward looking to next year. The year 2020 won't be a 100 percent focus of the rest of these articles this month, but for a large number of you, you're already looking to 2020 (or to your fantasy football teams), so we'll focus on that a bit more this month.

At this rate, Seager is probably trending toward top-15 third baseman value. He'd easily be that if I felt comfortable projecting him to hit .275 over a full season, but we need
