In October, as he was poised to come back, Sturridge strained his calf. He returned to training in November but re-injured his thigh and was shut down until the end of the year.
Sturridge's Boston rehab will take place over Christmas. Liverpool owner John Henry also owns the Red Sox.
Sturridge and teammate Luis Suarez finished first and second in the Premier League in goals last season. With Suarez sold to Barcelona and Sturridge sidelined, Liverpool has struggled offensively. The club has just 19 goals in 16 league games and sits 11th in the Premier League table.
