Dan Jennings (concussion) began a rehab assignment with the Gulf Coast League Marlins on Tuesday.

He threw a scoreless inning in his first appearance. Miraculously, Jennings didn't experience a serious injury after being hit in the head by a line drive a couple weeks ago. The Marlins might hold him out until rosters expand, but it appears that he'll be fine.

Dan Jennings (concussion) said Thursday that he's not experiencing any concussion symptoms.

He rode the stationary bike without incident on Wednesday and planned to run on the treadmill Thursday. Jennings has also not demonstrated sensitivity to noise or light. "I feel pretty normal, which all things considered is a shock, a surprise and a relief," Jennings said. "I feel like I can function and do everything I could do before. That's an absolute relief." Jennings expects to be activated next month.

Great news. Not surprisingly, he has been diagnosed with a concussion and will remain in the hospital overnight for observation. Jennings will undoubtedly be placed on the 7-day concussion disabled list prior to Friday's game.

Dan Jennings (head) has been taken to a Pittsburgh hospital to be evaluated further.

Jennings had to be carted off after being struck in the left side of his head with a line drive Thursday. He was dazed and likely concussed, but more will be known after the hospital visit.
Aug 7 - 10:19 PM

Dan Jennings left Thursday's game against the Pirates after a Jordy Mercer line drive caught him in the head.

It was a scary situation in Pittsburgh, as Jennings slumped to the ground as the ball ricocheted off his head before being caught by shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria. He arose briefly before stumbling and needing to be assisted by catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia. The good news is that while Jennings was certainly dazed, he never lost consciousness and saluted the crowd as he was carted off the field. The Marlins will perform concussion tests, and Jennings is almost surely headed to the disabled list.

He posted a 1.74 ERA, 1.65 WHIP and 8/4 K/BB ratio over his 10 1/3 innings with the Marlins, and should get another opportunity with the big league club very soon.
