Maybe they are not same size or your bearing isn't fix with ball or your groove isn't spherical

Create a reference point at the center of the ball bearing. Create a reference surface (cylinder) at the center of the bearing groove or a reference circle. Mate the ball bearing to that surface or circle as coincident. This will also be a lot more reliable than the tangent mate, as tangent mates can tend to flip around.
