Budget Limits and Free Agents

Playing MLBM 2015, I'm at a loss to predict how much money I will be allowed for free agents. I would think that with a budget of 210 million and a current payroll of just over 169 million, I would be allowed 40 million for free agents, but it's invariably much less: 25 million in this case. Perhaps this has all changed in 2016 or 2017 but if not, what's going on? Is this the owner's fiscal personality or is there some logical reason I can't spend up to my budget limit? Makes it hard to plan as GM: I'll trade away some veterans or let them go free agent to free up budget room only to find I can't afford anyone to replace them. The budget limit does seem to apply to trades.
