    All-Star, MVP or Cy Young but not All-Star, All-Star

    Felix Hernandez was an All-Star in 2009, won Cy Young without being an All-Star in 2010, and was an All-Star in 2011 (and every year through 2015). Does anybody know of other players with three consecutive seasons in which they were All-Stars in the first and third ones and won MVP or Cy Young without being an All-Star in between.

    Re: All-Star, MVP or Cy Young but not All-Star, All-Star

    I have not looked but here is an article from 2012 on Baseball Players who won the MVP but were not All-Stars You can check the years around their MVP to see if they were All stars the preceeding and following year. Judging by the list I'm going to guess at least 1 meets your criteria but I haven't verified.

    Jimmy Rollins, 2007
    Justin Morneau, 2006
    Chipper Jones, 1999
    Juan Gonzalez, 1996
    Terry Pendleton, 1991
    Robin Yount, 1989
    Willie Stargell, 1979
    Dave Parker, 1978
    Don Newcombe, 1956
    Hal Newhouser, 1945
    Phil Cavarretta, 1945
    Hank Greenberg, 1935
    Baseball is life;
    the rest is just details.

    Rollins: Yes
    He got MVP votes five times and was an All-Star three times, the last of which was two years earlier in 2005.

    Morneau: No
    He won MVP before being an All-Star, but was an All-Star for the first time the next year.

    Jones: No
    He was an All-Star the year before and the year after.

    Gonzalez: Yes
    He won two MVPs and was only an All-Star three times. His nearest All-Star years were three years earlier in 1993 and two years later in 1998.

    Pendleton: No
    Like Morneau, he won MVP before being an All-Star, but was an All-Star for the first time the next year.
