League average.
So you first complain about using only qualified starters at the position, as IIRC there were only 21 of those in MLB last year.

Then you complain about there being too many using a lower PA threshold.

Is there some magic number in-between?

I look around MLB and I would take more than half of starting 2B over Gordon Beckham. As shown, I think he's in the bottom third of starting 2B in MLB.
