CLEVELAND (AP) - The Indians are working on a treatment plan for All-Star reliever Andrew Miller's sore right knee.

Miller, on the disabled list for the second time this season, visited a specialist on Tuesday in New York. Manager Terry Francona said Wednesday he intends to meet with Miller, the team's medical staff and president Chris Antonetti to "map out what we want to do."

Francona anticipates the team releasing more information Thursday, when the club opens a four-game series in Minnesota.

Antonetti says that surgery is not currently an option.

The 33-year-old Miller played catch in the outfield before Wednesday's game against the Chicago White Sox. He was on the DL twice last season with patella tendinitis.

One of baseball's most dominant relievers, Miller hasn't been effective since coming off the DL on May 11. He opened the season with 10 scoreless innings before hurting his left hamstring.

He is 1-3 with a 4.40 ERA in 17 appearances.
