After ending a 17-year postseason drought last season, the Miami Marlins hope to continue that success as they begin the Kim Ng Era in 2021.

In 2021, Marlins games will be locally televised on Bally Sports Florida (rebranded from Fox Sports Florida), while some will be on MLB Network (out of market only, but those will also be on Bally Sports Florida), and others may be nationally televised on ESPN, Fox or Fox Sports 1.

But if you don’t have cable, here’s how you can watch a live stream of every Marlins game in 2021, including options for both in-market and out-of-market fans:

Marlins 2021 Season Preview

As is often the case with new general manager hires, the Marlins’ Kim Ng avoided drastic changes to the big league club in her first offseason at the helm.

Instead, the front office took flyers on ground-ball-inducing relievers and signed an impact bat in outfielder Adam Duvall, who hit .237/.301/.532 with 16 home runs and 33 RBI across 209 plate appearances in 2020’s pandemic-shortened season.

The 32-year-old joined the team on a one-year, $5 million pact.

“He’s a good hitter, he’s a good player,” Marlins first baseman Jesús Aguilar said in spring training, according to MLB.com. “I think he’s going to be a great teammate for us, was a great addition for the team.”

The Marlins were already quite familiar with Duvall, and he with them: He spent the last two seasons with the Atlanta Braves after joining Miami’s in-division foes via trade during the 2018 campaign.

Miami finished second in the NL East a season ago with a 31-29 mark, then swept the Chicago Cubs in two games in the wild-card round before falling in three to the division-champion Braves.

“It’s been fun to watch guys go through their at-bats and how they compete, and how they just put together good at-bat after good at-bat,” Duvall said, per MLB.com. “Playing against them last year, I saw that. So that’s fun to get mingled in there and try to do the same.”

The team inked Anthony Bass to a two-year, $5 million deal and brought in fellow righty reliever Ross Detwiler for one year and $850,000 to round out the team’s major league signings.

Bass struggled in limited outings in his first five major league seasons before joining the Hokkaido Nippon-Ham Fighters of Sapporo, Japan, with whom he won a Nippon Professional Baseball title. Since then, he’s pitched for the Texas Rangers, Chicago Cubs, Seattle Mariners, and Toronto Blue Jays.

Over the last three seasons, the 32-year-old has pitched to a 3.44 ERA across 89 innings in the majors.

“I’ve been bouncing around,” Bass said, according to the Miami Herald. “It’s just nice to be somewhere to call home for a while.”

In 2020, as a member of the Blue Jays, Bass sported a 3.51 ERA. His 62.3% ground-ball rate ranked 10th among the 490 pitchers to toss at least 10 innings.

He got touched up for 3 earned runs in his first of a pair of appearances against the Marlins, though.

“Facing this group last year, it was tough,” Bass said, per the Miami Herald. “They never gave away at-bats against me. I felt like they worked me. When I was done, when I was walking off the mound against these guys, I felt mentally exhausted.”
