Marlins manager Mike Redmond said Jennings' eyes were open and he was responding to questions from the medical staff while on the mound.
After the Marlins' 7-2 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates, the team announced that a CT scan was negative, but Jennings was diagnosed with a concussion and was kept in a hospital overnight for observation.
Jennings was struck by a liner off the bat of Jordy Mercer in the seventh inning. The reliever momentarily stumbled before going to his knees after the play.
Jennings stood up to get in the cart. He put a hand up to acknowledge the crowd as he was driven away.
